In undisturbed natural ecosystems, relationships between pathogens and their hosts tend to attain a level of stability and plant populations are rarely severely damaged by diseases. However, in artificial or disturbed systems that exist in agriculture, horticulture and silviculture, the development of disease epidemics often seriously limits production. Epidemics result from a progressive increase of disease in time and space. The development of epidemics depends on a regular chain of events, each link of which is dependent on certain specific requirements being satisfied simultaneously. In this chapter, some of the components of epidemics will be described together with ways in which they can be manipulated to retard the progress of epidemics and thereby reduce production losses.
